hector the grumpy elephant 

The book "Hector n´aime pas la musique", in English "Hector doesn´t like music",

tells the story about a grumpy elephant Hector who can´t stand Bibou the gorilla playing

on his keyboard. He decides to confiscate it and put it on the apple tree.

Hector thinks that he just solved his problem but it´s just the beginning of a nightmare...  


This is a story I wrote few years ago, in 2014, during my studies at the Btk in Berlin.

I was attending the course of Isabel Pin about storytelling and characterdesign.

The goal of this exercise was to develop a story without text - only with images.


Some years have gone and I discovered it again few months ago. I was happy

to find it and I decided to refresh the illustrations.
